Landskrona is a city in Sweden marked by having been a refuge for migrants and exiles along modern history and especially after the industrial crisis that made it lose the majority of its population in the beginning of the 80s. Carlos Alba moved to this locality in May 2017 sponsored by the Landskrona Foto Festival to deepen the way of progressing and adapting of its inhabitants, both local and coming from much different realities. He sets out a psychological journey between the present and the past using both archive material and new images.

The Taste of the Wind puts the emphasis on the politics of the image, its veracity and its information, objective or not. How that image coming from the archive shapes the collective history through its directed look. By adding to this archive his own new images resulting from the research and compilation of testimonies, he wants to open in front of our eyes a new look upon individual movements, the collective mutations they provoke and how they are used and forgotten in the creation of a collective memory that does not lack motivation. His work represents a tribute to those who look for their freedom through a reflection on the present as an anchor point that starts from the past and inevitably goes towards the future.
